She Had Her Own Connection. {poetry} ~ Ann Griffin


She had her own connection.

This year the returning light

more vivid.

Finally the release

settles on my arms,

inside my head.

More delight

digging little spaces for

chard, Chinese cabbage,

tucking soft earth snugly

around each bundle.

Next day a snowy snow

all day lightly landing

except on the sidewalks.

Crashing 10 degrees

at night.

Soft blue skies with warm sun



Earth syncopations.


Ann Griffin’s days fill not only as a caregiver for seniors, as poet and photographer, but with a newer, never before known passion as an activist for non GMO food and food labeling and for banning hydraulic fracturing locally and Colorado statewide.
